Diesel Engine Giant Cummins Plans Hydrogen Future–With Trains Coming Before Trucks

Alan Ohnsman reports on Forbes that diesel engine giant Cummins is planning for a hydrogen future, with trains coming before trucks.

The C3 Take
  • Cummins is looking to lower emissions and sees hydrogen as a fuel source with enormous growth potential.
  • Cummins is investing heavily into trains for hydrogen because they are on a fixed route, making refuel more predictable and scheduled.

“The Columbus, Indiana-based manufacturer, which supplies diesel engines for boats, heavy-duty pickups, delivery vehicles, buses and semis, laid out a comprehensive strategy in its ‘Hydrogen Day’ presentation, covering its production of fuel cells, stationary power systems, fuel tanks and electrolyzers to help companies make their own hydrogen. Cummins is testing hydrogen-powered big rigs, but expects both transit operators and steelmakers needing to lower their carbon emissions to be the best early markets, Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger tells Forbes.”
